Product details

Planetary Gear Spirograph Espresso WDT Tool – (Weiss Distribution Technique)

This model, unlike the v1, has an adjustable needle length.

A Premium Spirographic Espresso Distribution Tool by Papel Espresso®

We’ve optimized every aspect of this tool, from perfectly engineered gear ratios to the placement of the needles. Elevate your espresso experience with unparalleled consistency just a few spins away. Perfectly fluffy espresso pucks are now within reach.

Quick geometry lesson: Hypotrochoids and epitrochoids are curves defined by tracing a point attached to a circle that’s rolling along the inside or outside of a fixed circle, respectively. Spirographs use this concept to create mesmerizing geometric patterns.

The Papel WDT™ employs 15 needles, each with a 0.30mm diameter, to trace dozens of hypotrochoids and epitrochoids through the mounded coffee grounds in your 49mm, 51mm, 54mm, 57mm and 58mm portafilter basket. This mechanical motion distributes and fluffs the grounds in seconds, ensuring consistency no matter how early in the morning it is. The increased needle count, compared to competitors, enhances distribution performance, elevating your espresso enjoyment.

The Papel WDT™ features a perfect gear design that mixes, distributes, and the coffee grounds in your portafilter in just three spins. Four separate gears come together in an optimized fashion. 

You can easily select the needle length that suits your basket.


What sets this product apart from competitors:

  • Design ergonomics and flexibility: The design is optimized for needle placement and ergonomic use.
  • Use of 15 needles: More needles compared to others enhance distribution performance and improve the espresso experience.
  • Identical product as advertised: The product you receive will be identical to the one shown in the shared images.
  • Detailed prints: The product is meticulously designed to capture even the finest details.

How to use the tool:

  1. The tool comes with 15 needles pre-inserted into the gear holes.

  2. Fill your portafilter with espresso grounds, place the tool on top, and give it 3 spins.

  3. Remove the tool from the basket, place it in its stand, tamp your grounds, and brew some espresso.

With this product, you’ll receive:

  • The Papel WDT™
  • 20x needles, each with a 0.30mm diameter.
  • Weighted base with a self-aligning stand.
  • Height adjustable up to 13mm.

If you want to change the needles of the product in the future, an allen key to open the top cover is sent with the product. Using this key, the spare needles sent with the product can be replaced when necessary.

Compatibility: Currently, the base is designed to fit 49mm, 51mm, 54mm and 58mm portafilters with two flanges. If you have a different type or size of portafilter, please contact us. We plan to offer additional options to increase compatibility in the future, so let us know what you’re using.

The Papel WDT™ is a brand by Papel Espresso®. We are currently in the process of rebranding our high-end espresso accessories and barista tools from Papel Espresso® to better align with our vision for our small business.
